respected private business, revered private business more than we have now in the united states, that other nations have more pro-growth policies than we do, are more natural resource oriented than we are, less tax oriented, less exposure to budget deficits that we do here in america. remember the other night anna dark yoe jim hackett told us ghana and algeria are easier to deal with than the united states in doing business. algeria. read "savage war and peace," watch the. these are more investor friendly than the u.s.? if china is better than capitalist america, why shouldn't ghana be a hot bed of investment? what's safe for the united states? what's safer? we're going to talk about developed countries after the break. that's called a tease in tv speak. now i want to highlight the safest developing ones with terrific stocks to shock you -- that's right, i'm going to shock you out of your complacency. brazil, china and peru. that's right, you heard me. brazil, china and peru are all safe countries to put your money in. in many ways safer than the united states, because they do not favor a d
the business climate is better in those countries than it is in the united states. >> right. >> my question is if other countries are so much more attractive and business friendly than the united states currently, should we have even greater than 20% exposure to international? >> i waffle over this. 20% is foreign. 10% is gold. that leaves 70% for united states. i am not giving up on this country. we have a lot of great values. remember, many of the s&p stocks and most of the dow stocks are international companies. they will take advantage of exactly what you're talking about. 20% overseas is very high. probably the highest of any money manager i know. that's how far i'm going and not a percent further. i need to go to mitch in south carolina which i call carolina. mitch? >> got a big-time booyah from charleston, south carolina. >> go ahead. >> -- around $40 a share just before the recent push. currently up about 20% and definitely think the stock has more room to run. my question is around the fact that i bought fluor in '09 and don't think it's a trade i can turn into a long-term capital
'll be left behind. this problem is going to get solved, and it should be solved here in the united states. >> joe, realistic assessment. do you believe a cap and trade even after massachusetts and the climate we're in, focus on jobs, can actually pass and get to the president's desk this year? >> you know, listen, i think we sat and are surprised by a lot of things. i think we're going to be working on jobs, but i absolutely believe that it's incredibly important that they deal with this. i think if you come at it in a different way, the way the president did tonight, they'll have a lot more success. >> joe lockhart, tony fratto, rob nichols, anita dunn, thank you. >>> we'll see how the market votes tomorrow, john, but short of any big surprises in your view, that cuts a night for us. >> i think so. i think the markets are likely to see this as a continuation. thanks for joining us. see you tomorrow morning. >>> i'm jim cramer, and welcome to my world. >> you need to get in the game! >> firming are going out of business and they're nuts, nuts, know nothing. >> i like to see there's a bull
$3.5 billion to put up 100 new projects throughout the united states and 49 states and that's being matched by providers who are putting up another $4 billion. >> it can move the needle for you, right? >> the margins are very, very good. >> we think we are very, very early. before anybody was talking about smart energy. >> you also have an industrial business. i think there's a turnaround coming and you're in automotive. wire line infrastructure and satellite, medical, military and move the needle and it does. that's the broad based analog business. we developed certain core capabilities to do things in smartphones and in cellular telephones and we've then taken this i.p. and the intellectual property and looked to apply it in underserved markets and smart energy is a great example. if you break open a digital broadcast satellite, you see silicon devices and medical devices. so where we see an opportunity to do a customized i.c. it's not as big as the cell phone world. >> that's important. cell phone job, right? >> i didn't break up the three kindles that i got from friends because
of like everyone is talking about how the united states is slow. you made a very, very pointed comment in your conference call which just finished where you talked about that the u.s. is actually getting stronger. how can you explain the disconnect between what i heard last night in the president's state of the union about how things aren't so strong and all the doom and gloomsteres and your u.s. business is picking up here? >> jim, i think one thing is that technology is leading this recovery. and i don't think that's been true since the tech bubble burst back at the beginning of last decade. so i think there's pent-up demand for technology and we're seeing it. our i.t. business in america grew by double digits on a year on year basis. >> that's why i like tech and i'm going to keep pushing it. roy vallee, great to have you on here. you do have the pulse on this whole industry. thanks so much. those of you crying in your beer about qualcomm thinking it's all over, mr. vallee has a better handle on it than qualcomm who has no handle on it at all. i feel better. technology is leading us
in the united states and the earnings of the big companies that are about to report. in fact, i regard it as an inverse correlation. the more they fire here, the more money they make. and the hirer their stock goes. given that business is so bad in this country and better almost everywhere else, i believe companies will be penalized with lower stock prices if they hire here and will rally if they hire overseas where the growth is. what matters during earning season is less earnings, and right now joblessness equals profits. it's a fact. when it comes to this kind of thing, getting political, making judgments whether it's the congress' fault for making things so darn confusing and difficult for small business, or whether it's the rich moneybag bankers that shouldn't make their pay, maybe they're the problem. all of those things just obscure what we need to think about as investors, which is how much money companies are making from not hiring people. case in point, caterpillar. see that one today? stock folded $3.79. it was a stunning move. a stunning move. talk about a company that's la
. the companies that are rallying are divorced. divorced from the united states. and they aren't paying any alimony or child support. now, when you're on one of these money political shows, when you're discussing the prospects of the president and the democrats, you have to focus on the impact of job losses. and you know what you got to say! scary, sad. and you think all of these companies are deadbeats! [ gunfire ] that aren't hiring, their profits should be garnished if they're not helping the costs. but this is not a political show. if you own shares in a company, you must hope that the company is doing everything it can to take its business overseas. and you're not thinking of adding anyone here, because it's too expensive. and not productive enough. in fact, it's worse. companies based in america have realized that it pays to fire, not hire. fire, not fihire. don't believe me? look at u.p.s., which i learned from my charitable trust. the stom jumped 2.5 cents today after being up since last friday. why a second-day rally? i think you have a second-day rally because it shows the company
for safety. but then, united states, saudi arabia of natural gas. a country that whatever problems you may have with the dictatorship, with the pelosi prolatariat in congress. we've been endorsing natural gas on this show for ages. it's the transition fuel that will allow us to gain energy independence from -- if not pro-terrorist regimes worldwide, but ones that i don't think we'd necessarily want -- it's not like they're canada. anyway, this will help fight global warming as it's 30% cleaner in terms of carbon emissions and oil, 40% cleaner than coal and could create a huge number of jobs especially if washington throws its weight behind the fuel. chesapeake announced a deal to bring natural gas into the jersey area next week. i like that. there's a recognition that the congress that blocks natural gas will be portrayed in the november elections as an enemy of job creation, an enemy of energy independence, and an enemy of cleaner air. if the democrats don't become a whole lot more friendly toward natural gas, you can bet the republicans will seize on this issue and grab a whole lot more
're the president of the united states and you see cypress semi, don't you get discouraged? if t.j. rodgers doesn't need a job how can the president do it. >> president can't create a job. crashing jobs somewhere to do it, give it to some other people for some shovel-ready project or some train that we don't need. and for a while look good, you know, like we're creating jobs. the fact is we're healthy, we're in the private sector, creates jobs and grows and is healthy, and that cannot get done by government. they're simply not as efficient as the private sector. >> in the conference call you felt president obama would take away some of the tax credits. is that because you believe our country is financially in bad shape or because it's not necessary or obama doesn't understand how business works? >> the tax credits i'm referring to are those for renewable energy. i'm also the chairman of sun power, the solar energy firm. i think the reason the tax credits are going away is we can't afford them. our debt is mounting very rapidly, and there's only so much money you can print and so much taxes you ca
or other commodities through our system. we have about 24,000 miles of pipeline across the united states and canada. we have about 180 terminals that handle everything from gasoline to jet fuel to ethanol. we just get paid a fee for this, mostly under fairly long-term contracts. so regardless of the price of the commodity, we still make money. and that's why i call it a toll road concept. and i think this year's results prove it works pretty well, even in a down economy. >> let's talk about this. this was the first time. some guys said you missed your quarter. the truth is you made your quarter, but there were some businesses that actually had declines in revenue. but you still made it. explain to people how you can have such a mosaic of business it didn't matter that jet fuel was down. >> the decline was very meaningless because we have a lot of back to back contracts, particularly on our texas intrastates where we buy natural gas in south texas, resell it on a ship channel back to back, make a spread of 10 to 1 cents on it that's locked in on both ends, but as the price of natural gas
money" that it's easier to drill in ghana than the united states. the question may be whether it's easier to drill in venezuela than here. no sector is higher up on obama's enemy list than the banks. that means the group deserves a 15% haircut. if not a buzz cut perhaps with a rusty k-bar. j.p. morgan is the ideal mix of private equity and was exempt from glass steel. that's one of the sub text of the rule. so be careful with jpmorgan. even though it's a favorite of mine. goldman has already been crushed. but there's likely more pain ahead now that the ceo has become a national pinata. i can't do it. i just can't. i like the guy too much. wait a second. health care, which represents 13.1% of the s&p 500 is another sector that steams obama. and gets a 10% discount in the new prism. hey, lloyd. good to be back, lloyd. that's down from 15% because the end of the democratic supermajority. i think this is a difficult group. coakley lost, but the market knew it was coming, so it jacked the stocks up. hence why they now have more risk. we say focus on the ones that report it. that's cov
usage grew 110% in the united states. 148% worldwide. but even after that growth, it's still accounted for just 1.26% of total web consumption in the u.s., and less than 1% around the globe. i think that thing could triple and triple and triple again. i could talk about which smart phone has the best processor -- google -- or who's on the better network -- apple -- or who has the better camera -- google -- or who has the better apps -- apple. 3 billion. thank you scott wapner. but the truth is none of that matters. smart phones do not have a valedictorian. they have a lot of suma. piper jeff fray about how apple's in fabulous shape. it should sell 36 million iphones in 2010. that doesn't include the possibility of expanding to other carriers besides at&t in the u.s. plus, there's a new iphone model expected in the middle of the year. but even this analyst misses the point. he focuses on apple's ability to withstand competition from google. this is not a google-apple faceoff. there's room for far more than one player to surf the tsunami. apple is too important to cast aside. some disagr
the printing presses to find especially in the united states to find huge stimulus programs and deficits that debase their currencies. witness the weak greenback. and investors seek the safety of gold especially when the system is being flooded with new money. if and when the chinese allow their currency to be revalued upward, the price of gold and dollars will go up big, but there's no saying if and when that will happen. because gold is a hedge against inflation, once economies finally start heating up again, we'll get some inflation, which is bound to happen. that's another reason to oent precious metal now. even as the economic chaos reason will be taken away. typically we like to think of gold assurance. it will go up when the stock portion of your portfolio goes down. lately gold's been going up as stocks go up, too, so it's looking more like a win/win frankly. because despite what the bears are would you believe, gold is more than just a barometer of inflation and economic uncertainty. more and more countries and people have bean baiing gold as a part of a portfolio and that's hel
renewable fuels, natural gas is viable now. we've got a 100 year supply of it in the united states. it's 50% cleaner than coal, 20% cleaner than petroleum based fuels and comparison u.s. production of nat gas is double that of oil and close to that of coal. and the performance of the stocks, chesapeake, devin, apache, anadarko, range, over the last 20 years downright spectacular. natural gas is simply better. but the one problem the industry faced over and over again is it doesn't have the political clout of, say, the anti-rainbow pro-black lung coalition, aka the coal lobby. we need the politicians on our side for big natural gas push. while congress is working on a very good nat gas bill now, the obama administration hasn't exactly been a friend of this silent but not so deadly commodity. i have to lighten it up a little pt that's why tonight we're thrilled to be speaking to boone pickens, who while wildly known as a takeover operator -- is also the most public proponent of using nat gas as a transition fuel with the pickens plan to promote wind, energy and natural gas. he refocused this
place else in the united states is colder than me today. say hello to russia. i know you can see it. what's up. >> caller: out the door. >> i'm trying to implement the recommendation we put it in nonu.s. companies. that's easy to do. but a lot of american-owned companies earn a lot of money overseas. would it be appropriate to count as a non-u.s. investment that portion of al tri-yeah's profits that are derived from overseas consumers or is fact that altria is u.s.-owned and subject to tax laws and political vagaries, does that derive where the company does or does not make money. >> i'm going to switch the example for a second. when altria is split in half, they gave the profits to pm. i like that very much. i own altria because the yield is so good. you can't get the international by owning m.o. coca-cola, knockout. that is an example of what you're talking about. i would take advantage of the fact that k.o. was knocked down and do some buying in that one. be an active investor in 2010. focus on the year's earning season. my game plan is to hear good things from alcoa, bad things
the natural gas at very economic rates for people. >> do you think there is any chance that the united states will change, enact a natural gas act that would make it so we could be free from opec? or is this just going to be something that's still -- >> it makes sense. it's logical. the abundance of the gas, the increase of employment. adding 90,000 jobs in 2010 in pennsylvania, an attractive resource. it's economic. it just makes so much sense. it's hard to believe it won't get done. >> ultra, the best record of all the natural gas companies in the world. guys, think long term. i'm telling you the return is not over. this one is 30 points behind the other stocks, percentage points. it should catch up. it's a great producer. michael watford is a great executive. stay with cramer. >>> coming up, bubble alert. china became the world's largest exporter of vehicles last year. but is the demand artificial? which stocks are running on empty and must be sent to the sell block? and later, stay tuned as we crank up the volume. cramer goes all out as the calls keep coming in. try to keep up on the high
, with an estimated 44 million viewers a week in the united states. and those numbers translate into some big sales for the products oprah recommends. if you're lucky enough to create a product she loves, a mention on her show just might make you a millionaire. in this hour, we introduce you to someone who thinks she has the secret to getting on "the oprah winfrey show." but first, we examine several businesses like this one, "carol's daughter," that skyrocketed to success because of "the oprah effect." businesses large and small
